By: Minna Sugimoto

(KHNL) -- A visitor from Texas is nursing a sore knee after a hiking mishap at Manoa Falls Thursday. The Fire Department's helicopter airlifted the injured woman from the trail at about four p.m.

Rescue crews say she was already wearing a knee brace when they spotted her about three-quarters of the way up the trail. They say she previously dislocated her knee, but wanted to experience the hike as part of her Hawaiian vacation.
